    Gigabyte GA-Z270X-Ultra Gaming and GA-Z270X-UD5 Pictures

    Are you sure about that? I see the UD5 has a TB header, but is not listed on the compatibility list for GC-ALPINE RIDGE.

    Jackheads PowerMac G5 -> ATX Mod

    Oh, he most definitely doesn't need it :D A slim 280 rad on the two front fans in the case could have handled all of it.

    can i have mac and windows on 2 seperate drives but share 1 drive

    Another two options: • Format the HDD as HFS+ and run MacDrive on windows. Not free but works very well (I have it myself). • Format the HDD as NTFS and follow these instructions. Free, but is going to have to be redone if you change the drive name or want to add another NTFS drive.

    X99 Hackintosh NEWBIE here!

    See Freak's GA-X99M-GAMING 5 for guide. About the MSI X99 SLI: PRO: 128 GB memory support. CON: No thunderbolt header, that is you will not be able to use thunderbolt add on card. Stick with ASUS, Gigabyte, or ASRock if you want thunderbolt.

    Liquid Cooled AMD Radeon R9 390X

    I thought the core configuration was 4096/256/64? I don't see how this Fiji XT can be a titan killer with < 4k GCN cores... Plus I was really looking to replace my crossfire Tahiti XTLs (2x2048) with essentially double the compute power (2x4096) :D

    MVC reports Titan X is fully functional with newest Web Driver

    Yes: "The GTX 680’s FP64 performance is 1/24th its FP32 performance, compared to 1/8th on GTX 580." (anandtech) Unlike Titan, Titan Black which where 1/3rd. Essentially equivalent to 980 since both 1/32nd but will perform slightly better than 980 since essentially 50% more compute...

    MVC reports Titan X is fully functional with newest Web Driver

    Its too bad the DP performance is god awful (1/32 SP). Kind of defeats the purpose of the ridiculous $1K asking price as an entry level professional card. Now its just a super high end gaming card.

    tonymacx86's ASUS Test Build: Z97-A - i3-4340 - HD4600 - Thunderbolt EX II

    Only reaction appropriate for this: Now all we need is 4k Thunderbolt monitors. Great work as always tony. A Z97-WS build w/Thunderbolt card would be a killer build... :D

    GA-Z87X-UD7 TH - HDMI Audio woes

    Toleda, I followed these instructions and got everything working just fine on the first graphics card out of the 2 R9 280Xs I have in 16x slots. Its clear I need to duplicate your above edits somehow for the second card. Any ideas? Thanks.

    GTX Titan Z - anyone testing this card yet?

    You may want to keep up to date w/ OpenCL support on the GK110b (i.e. Titan Black). I know its been iffy but I haven't been keeping up to date on it since i went AMD.

    GTX Titan Z - anyone testing this card yet?

    Let me save you the trouble: DO NOT GET THIS CARD. Don't even bother considering it. Its an utter clusterf*ck waste of money. Driver performance (i.e. thread distribution over GPUs by apps) is abysmal even in windows, much less OS X. About the only thing it kills is Luxmark, N-Body simulations...

    RAM G.skill Ripjaws X 1600 DDR3, work?

    Its not really a matter of OS X; you need to check compatibility with your motherboard. In the manual, there will be a listing of various memory modules which have been tested and verified to be compatible by the manufacturer. That being said, RAM compatibility is almost guaranteed to work if...
